Right at first I thought it would make a lot of sense for the rebels to do it and drag the west in. according to our country's leadership they could see where the artillery was fired from and it was a govt controlled area. Now I beleive Assad's regime did it.

It could be that one of them was the rebels and another the regime. I wouldn't put it past either of them.

Then who are these cats? (notice that those are not rockets but projectiles...they would be hard to track without a trail)

Syrian "rebels" are firing chemical weapons. - YouTube

Why is it an either/or poll?

Why can't BOTH sides be using wmd-type stuff?

This is precisely why the USofA should stay the hell out of the entire mess.

No matter what side you support, more than likely you're supporting a very bad side.
A lose-lose situation.

When I was in the Marine Corps in the 80's I just happen to remember one class about chemical weapons saying they were very difficult to deliver. If they get too hot they degrade or chemically degrade to the point they are ineffectivem, so you have to use an airplane or a larger artillery piece. If not launched quite a distance they kill as many of the people using them as who they were meant for. The wind shifts and you are screwed. I really dont know a lot more about them than that. I have not beleive what anyone has told me for so long I might be lying to myself.:confused:

Well, since Obama hasn't released a series of bare-chested photo ops in which he has claimed to kill a tiger (which was already dead), catch a giant fish (that was prepared for the photo shoot by others), faking a karate throw, sleeping in the snow with wolves, posing with a dead polar bear (which he did not kill), etc., then I'm gonna go with Obama's credibility over Putin.

It's either/or because you must choose.

It isn't a poll about who did what, it is about who is deemed more credible.

We should, I agree.

IMO, the title should have been; do you support the Russians or Americans.

Guess it's safe to say that the OP isn't Walter Polovchak.

Actually, I am. Putin has a reputation and a record of deliberate deception. Obama has a reputation and record of ineptitude and incompetence. You merely asked the wrong question.

Obama has a reputation and record of both ineptitude and incompetence along with deliberate deception, let's not allow the home team bias to completely ruin things... The question was correct, because it is the one I wanted an answer to.

But that isn't the question, it isn't about who you support, it is about asking yourself who is more credible.

Simple question, simple answer.

"Credibility" of a KGBist is not a concept I can digest.

Now news is out that Russia has a 100 page report showing that it was the rebels who did the gasing, not Assad. Putin has said, it makes little logical sense for Assad to attack his own people when the momentum has been in his favor and knowing that the world would come down hard, especially the US.

Russia says it's compiled 100-page report blaming Syrian rebels for a chemical weapons attack | McClatchy

So who is more credible? Obama or Putin?
I'm gonna go with Lord Voldemort.

Well, I can't say i'm surprised by your answer, but to spin it another way, can't you always count on a tiger to be a tiger? Roy Horn forgot, and you see where it got him...
